Blog: British Fashion Awards
Leonie Barrie | 11 December 2009
Luxury goods group Burberry continues to pull away from its competitors after scooping two top accolades at this week’s British Fashion Awards.
Chief creative officer Christopher Bailey won the 2009 Designer of the Year prize, while the company also won Brand of the Year at the ceremony held at The Royal Courts of Justice in London on Wednesday night.
It’s probably no coincidence that the firm is also bucking financial trends after posting better than expected second-quarter revenues last month, helped by demand for handbags and leather goods. It also set ambitious targets for the next three years, including growth in children’s wear and in China.
Other leading fashion figures also honoured at the 2009 British Fashion Awards included Kim Jones, creative director for Dunhill, who was named Menswear Designer; and Christopher Kane as BFC British Collection of the Year.
John Galliano received the award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design in recognition for his extraordinary career from his graduate collection through to his most recent work at Givenchy and Christian Dior.
And the Swarovski Emerging Talent Awards for Ready-to-Wear and Accessories went to Peter Pilotto who won the Ready to Wear award and Holly Fulton who collected the award for Accessories.
